How to define a dictionary for new language?

Hi :)
I was wondering if the LibreOffice translators team could help Sergio Martino.  Ubuntu translators might find the dictionary useful to if aff and dic file-types are usable.  My guess is that oxt is unique to LibreOffice so this is mostly for LibreOffice translators.  


So, is it possible to "register" a 'new language', really a dialect spoken in the Bari area of Italy.  How do you get it to appear in the combo-box in the spelling-checker dialog?


Right now it's in aff, dic and oxt formats
Regards from 

Tom :)
